All-Purpose Off Topic Chatter Thread (Leafs Lounge)

So I was playing Halo 3, after about 10 minutes the color went all weird, so i checked the cables. Fine. Then the picture disappeared entirely. Audio still worked.

So I turned off the xbox, restarted and now the TV cant detect any signal from the xbox. I tried different cables, and different TVs. Nothing.

Anyone had any repair work done in Canada? My warranty is gone so thats not an option.

$129 can get you a brand new Xbox 360 Arcade. Just take your hard drive from your existing Xbox and pop it into the new one.

Best thing to do though is call Microsoft just to price out how much it would cost to repair your issue. If the cost is too expensive, buy the new one. If its not, get it fixed.

this.

You can spend 100$ to repair your system or get a new one, with a warranty and an extra controller for not very much more.

It's a scam, I've had 3 xbox's.

YOUR All-Time Team created by....

@ home sick and looking for fun sooooo
let's play a game

compile a list of your all-time "team" based on the letters of your first name
so player's last name matches with letter of your first name
e.g.
T- Thornton
I-Ihnacak
M-McCarty

or something like that

THE CATCH: need at least 1 fwd, 1 d, 1 g, 1 coach

Full names not short forms like Jim, Pat, Bill, etc.

Obv. longer names have an advantage but just thinking this might be fun

(Disclaimer: I am sick so this idea may be a byproduct of an ailing brain)

Here we go:

F- Forsberg
I- Iginla
L- Lemieux
I- Irbe
P-Potvin (Denis)
E-Eakins (yea Dallas Eakins gets promoted cuz who else coaches with E??)

Sometimes when I goto bars I'm an astronaut in training and will be launching in 2012.

Take it with a grain of salt.

Breakfast Sausage Sandwich of DOOOOOOM!

Just came across this while taking a gander at the news today and while I shouldn't really be surprised by this, Tim Hortons breakfast sausage sandwich apparently packs quite a punch in terms of calories and sodium. 529 calories and 1169 mg of sodium (that's insane). I usually opt for the bacon one instead but I sincerely doubt that it's any healthier.

So not only are they trying to secretly kill us with that kind of food, they bombard us with their awful commercials. That's steeped.

Official Gladiator Dude Topic

You know, the tanned dude with the grey goatee who sits behind Wilson in $5,000 dollar suits. He just left my gym, was parked next to me and got into a black Maserati. Dude was wearing a crazy leather jacket and wasn't even sweating in this heat.

I should ask him for an interview. List some questions for me.
